Had a fabulous meal at Bel Punto , my husband and I ordered the shellfish platter which we thoroughly enjoyed although it could have been a little more generous! Caprese salad and complimentary focaccia were also excellent. Waitress (Cindy) was efficient and friendly and table...was cleaned, cutlery replaced promptly throughout the evening. Will definitely be back !More

Excellent service from the team especially Simon, some great tasty food. Had an amazing starter and main so big are the portions I couldn’t eat dessert. We sat on the terrace overlooking the ocean, the windows are pulled back so you can control the breeze...if a mild day. I would defo recommend. The service was 5 star along with the food! Well done.More

We do not mind to pay a bit more. But we do not want to cringe before ordering a bottle of wine. The fish cakes as a starter is devine.

I have been to amazing restaurants before but Bel Punto - from views to food to service - has set a new bar! The waiters follow requests to the tee. The hostesses are warm and welcoming - even went as far as offering to take...pictures of my squad for us (did a good job too). A bit embarrassed to say the menu confused me (hahaha) but the food was just amazing. If you're in Durban, your trip is not complete without a meal here! (I'd upload a picture but there's a 5mb cap on Images here 🙈🙄)More

My family of 3 had dinner here over the August long weekend. The setting is lovely and the restaurant was busy. The food that my husband and I ordered was absolutely delicious. He had the calamari and I had steak which melted in my mouth....However there was no kids menu and upon asking, our waiter said they could make a pasta. I asked for a half portion of pasta Alfredo for our 8 year old. Although it was delicious I felt that making such a big portion for a small child was incredibly wasteful. When we got our bill I saw we were charged R179 for that meal!! To add insult to the injury, the brandy and cokes we ordered were served as doubles- without our being asked. Sadly these two things left us feeling as though we had been taken advantage of. I know that the pandemic has affected all businesses, but truly, trying to make up the loss by fleecing families is not the best way to do this. Although the food and setting are lovely, I feel the prices are very high and not having some reasonable provision for children means that we will not recommend this restaurant to our friends and family.More

Had an incredible meal with family who were out from America. The service as always was superb and the meal was absolutely delicious. We had crayfish starters, fish and steak for mains. We were looked after by an incredible team. Will definitely be back again.
